Perfect print, perfect length, perfect a-line, perfectly me:) Introducing my third skirt for the Mini Wardrobe Challenge I am participating in. I told you I was going to make all skirts, didn't I! I finished the fourth skirt this weekend too - cut from my beloved Amy Butler fabric. I'll debut that one this week sometime.
But for now - enjoy this one:)

I wore a pair of my favorite shoes to church today - I found them at a garage sale a couple months ago for just $2.00 - I love them:)
I want to share a scripture that has been coming to my mind over and over again the last several weeks. Currently my home is not really any of these things and I have been really troubled by that. A goal of mine is to work on every single one of these things. This scripture comes from the Doctrine and Covenants of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints, but I think it really applies to any faith.
Doctrine and Covenants § 88:119:
I'm in need of a little uplifting this week - if you have a favorite scripture, please share it:)

Sisterly bonding. We skipped out together on Saturday at got massages at a massage school by the resort.
Hubby and Miss S....I haven't seen hubby that relaxed in ages...
The Beatles store at the Mirage...I could have easily dropped 5 grand in this store.
Attack of the shark at Joe's Crab Shack...
Delicious desserts at The Cheesecake Factory...
Dinner at Margaritaville featuring Raesha's worst hair day of her life. We will never mention this hairstyle again.
Petting the Manta (is that how you spell that?) Rays at Shark Reef Aquarium...
Balls and her awesome hubby....who was sick again. It is physically impossible for this man to go on vacation without getting deathly ill. Luckily this trip he didn't end up in the ER, like normal. But we still love him.

Do you remember my bag-o-patches that I found at the thrift store?? 14 of you awesomely commented. And guess what? You're each getting a patch:)
Here's the fabulous comments.
Now I know that I have most of your addresses somewhere (probably buried in the other 8 piles on my desk) BUT it would help me tremendously if you would email me your address to raeshadrz at yahoo dot com - then your new patches can be on their way to you:)
Love you all!!!

I really limited my swapping this summer and I've been happy with that. I think I'm going to continue to do that for a while. Low pressure swapping is the best. I'd also like to do some more one on one swaps - so if any of you are interested in swapping craftiness with me, just leave me a comment:) I promise to reply to you probably sometime in the next 6 weeks:):) Seriously, I am so behind on my emails.
Two of the swaps I participated in this summer were a child's bag swap for my flickr Bag Ladies group and the Summer edition of the Four Seasons Quilt Swap.
Miss S received this bag and all these lovely goodies all the way from Chile....isn't the bag gorgeous!!! We both love it:) It was made by the lovely Mercedes from Chile.
And just look at this gorgeous doll quilt I received for the Four Seasons Quilt Swap!!! Oh my goodness!! Isn't it beautiful!!! This beauty was made by the talented Soo from NSW - is that New South Wales??? I think so.
And extra goodies too....yum!!
